IN THE NEWS: A Breath of Fresh Air: Conversations on Green Building, Arts Education & Painting a Clean Energy Vision for the Future of L.A.

Link to Decor News Now story (May 24, 2023) | “Before we talk about how we’re going to change the future with green buildings, we need to be able to see it.” That was Ben Stapleton’s big takeaway after months of collaboration with Climate Resolve and the Boyle Heights Art Conservatory on a mural depicting a clean energy vision for the future of the Los Angeles community of Boyle Heights. Stapleton, Executive Director of US Green Building Council-Los Angeles (USGBC-LA), observed, in real time, as the youth and artists involved in creating the mural were asked to not just pontificate but also illustrate their ideas about what a greener future looks like. Then, they were truly changed and inspired to to take action. Decor News Now Editor in Chief, Courtney Porter, sat down for discussions with Ben Stapleton, and artist Oscar Ramírez, who spearheaded the youth arts education on the project.
